I'm not arguing against tweeters at all -- I'm just saying I don't want
a system like this one:
ry=16&maincategory=3, which appears to be the standard computer speaker
setup these days.

Yeah, I agree that a sub is very important. A 2.1 system would be ideal
for this setup, but the cost becomes the limiting factor.

And my local hi-fi dealer BLOWS. "Oh, you want quality? Bose is the way
to go." I'm not saying Bose is bad, I'm just saying that Bose is their
answer to everything... "Pro audio" my ass.

There's gotta be a better place around here.

Still researching...
